Why not explore the nearby areas of Muswell Hill, Crouch End, Highgate, Hornsey, Bounds Green, Archway, Wood Green, Harringay, Dartmouth Park and Friern Barnet

"It is in Highgate that Samuel Taylor Coleridge retreated to the home of Dr James Gillman, where he overcame his opium addiction and went on to write a number of his most famous works. He was affectionately known as the 'sage of Highgate'."

I love popping out at lunch time to see what Muswell Hill has to offer!

Not only is Alexandra Palace an extraordinary sight, the views from its hilltop position are also exceptional...
